Washington DC with Teen

Jump to last reply

I am taking my son to DC in mid Jan to see the Georgetown/PITT basketball game. We will be staying at the Quincy (1823 L Street). We are flying from RDU to BWI. Looks like we have several options to get from BWI to downtown DC. Driving isn't an option. Looking for option that will get us closest to our hotel but won't take a lot of time. We arrive on a Tuesday, early afternoon, and the game isn't until Wed night. Any suggestions on things not to miss and any great places to eat (thinking secret gems that the locals love and the tourists wouldn't know about). I know the obvious places to visit, but with limited time, not sure which are must see? My son is 16 1/2 and is interested in history, sports, and takes a certain interest in big city life and the socioeconomic differences that go along with it.

Thanks guys!
